    Okay, I have a question about forwarding Port 80 TCP.

    I successfully forwarded port 80 to my IP Address, but I'm not sure whether this IP has to be the one in your computer - in my case, or the automatically detected IP from DynDNS, which I'm using to host my local computer -

    I made a host name on DynDNS call:
    Also, I went to Dynamic DNS configuration in my router configuration, and it asked me for my Domain Name - is this jelvis, jelvis.dydns, or what?

    I gave me a list of options:

    I chose, which I think is right.
    It then asked me for my this the username that I use for the DynDNS Website, along with my password?

    I order to configure a Dynamic DNS host, do I have to pay for a domain?

    I don't understand...partly because all of the language on my router configuration is in German.

    I attached a screenshot of what I've been doing, and please fill free to help me out with the text fields:
